Hi there.

Thanks for being here.  Or there.  And both. 

This website is a free-range, autobiographical archive-in-progress. Everything here describes something of my somewhat unconventional life, through my work as a teacher, artist & musician, and through deep personal reflection. This archive is my creative response to a (very) late diagnosis of Aspergers at 53, and explores my lived experience retrospectively through the lens of autism. Use the top Menu to access each category, wherein you’ll find a colourful plethora of thoughts, visuals & sounds to explore.

I have devoted my life to interrogating creative process via visual arts, music, teaching & performance, combined with a passion for psycho-emotional transformation. I began drawing at 4 yrs old, and musicking at 14. In 1990 I began teaching in various areas of the visual and musical arts, and for almost 30 years provided a diverse range of innovative creative workshops & programs designed to share skills and promote well-being. I have no formal academic qualifications and am self-taught in everything I do.
